These are prevalent in standards and missing from frameworks.

Ancient scriptures are, at best, obsolete frameworks (guidance) and only fanatics treat them as standards.

These are people of whom society is usually wary as they represent a risk to the sustainability (stability / continuity / security) of the status quo.

The deharmonising effect of these extremists often leads to changes (in policy or behaviour) and/or innovation.

Whether one considers that a good or a bad thing depends upon one's subjective objectives.

So it just WAS.

Our moral intuition and convictions can't be proven to actually be objective or proven to be reliable indicators for objective morality or what is objectively right or wrong. We recognize everything you say as more than mere preference or moral / cultural relativism, but less than proven objectivity, and carry on as best we can. Where does this come from? Our biology from evolution? Maybe. Our biology from creation? Perhaps. Either way, that argument is interesting mostly theologically and philosophically speaking, as we all operate in reality off the same phenomena and only attribute the cause to different things.

You, presumably attribute the cause to god. We don't. As a result, you call it objective. We aren't willing to go quite that far. But from there, we proceed down the same path. You are the only person here that is uncomfortable with that. You are the only one that feels if we don't attribute the experience to god then we must be forced into cultural relativism. But we can, and do, manage to get along just fine not adopting cultural relativism, even if only by declaring the experience to be a moral axiom we are willing to fight to defend.

Why do you try to find defenders of moral relativism where none exist, just so you can fight against them? So what that we don't call it objective? So what if we don't attribute it to god? Why can't we attribute it to sociobiological evolution + moral axioms + objective logic and reasoning and not have it still be "objective morality" in function if not in name?

Ok, this is a long one ... but it's just so perfectly precise ... every word is so worth remembering. Shy

No Christian would argue against this nor does it make it murder.

A marvelous piece of apologetics.

For I feel that such comparative insinuations would only serve to insult the comparison. For instance, were I to call you dumb as rocks, I fell I'd have dealt such a wound to rocks that I'd be compelled to duel a geologist so that the rocks can retain their dignity.
